Judge Info - Richard Wilson
Showdog.com Judge Since Monday, February 29, 2016
Retirement Announced 2/28/2017
Not very political. Relatively high level of breed bias. Thinks dogs should be compared to how good they are vs the rest of their breed rather than overall quality vs all dogs.
Each judge on ShowDog.Com gives a different amount of weight to each trait of the dogs that they judge in each show. Below is a table of which traits Richard Wilson looks for.
|Top Neck and Back||Normal|
Each judge has a preference for certain handlers. These preferences may be based on past experiences, showing style, or just plain old dirty politics.

Only the top 25 are listed for the sake of brevity.
